Balsamic Vegetable Salsa with Cheese Toasts from Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes A Day

The other day I took a simple savory dish to a sweet baptism of a friend of mine. Many wonderful cooks had brought something to share to the bounty of this table and everything was very tasty- from the baked sandwiches, fresh salads, crackers and pepper jelly to the out of this world fabulous homemade Bear Lake raspberry ice cream. It was lovely to be together to celebrate with this family.

I made a simple salsa from some garden veggies served with cheese toast from the basic boule recipe of Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes A Day. The toast was crunchy and a hit on it’s own, but with the salsa, it was delicious. It all came together very quickly and it’s one of the reasons I so love the Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes A Day- fresh, versatile and tasty. I used my balsamic rosemary reduction to flavor the salsa, so it was a quick fix as well.

I plan to do a post on the cheese crackers, and grilled pizza with Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day, but if you are interested in the recipe before then, check out this blog, More Than A Mount Full with Chef Dennis for a great write up.
